For those of you who are thinking of buying this movie because you like the original, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and the original producers and directors are working on an original Dumb & Dumber 2 that's coming out in 2014 some time. Save your money and go watch it. You'll be much happier, I promise.
Footnote : there's now an actual sequel with Carrey and Daniels in it!?!? Haven't had the pleasure but the 'law' may really get a test now!
I know...? Der? What do you expect. That's what the movie is. Well... at least Dumb and Dumber had some execution. There was setup to the jokes. There was delivery. There was a method to the madness.
Dumb and Dumberer has none of that. There is only one way to describe this movie. One word. RETARDED.
There are two or three funny scenes and with proper execution would have been even funnier. Bob Saget's rant about his bathroom was a stomach hurter, and that's about it. The rest are ridiculous, in the tradition of JACKASS kind of jokes.
There's no story either. It's about... I... I don't remember what it's about. Something about a chest, a school mascot costume and a class for special people.
Okay... I've gotta say something good. The movies deplorable and a waste of time, but Rachel Nichols, who plays Jessica, is the only bright spot in the entire poop splattered mess. She's the movies object of lust and SHE'S the only reason to hit PLAY on your DVD. I hope she gets some more movie rolls because she's sharp and one of the sexiest things to happen to the silver screen in awhile.
Otherwise, walk away... no 'RUN'. No, in fact, go rent DUMB and DUMBER and watch it again. See how humor is supposed to be executed.
The Story of "how Harry met Lloyd" is only funny in very few spots, most notably the "Icee/slurpee scene." Actually, that's the ONLY part of the entire movie that I laughed at, while Dumb and Dumber is a work of grotesque comedy genuis on par with "The Jerk," or even something like "Caddyshack" or even "Animal House" (though it would be all of those movies, meeting the Farrelly Brothers, who brought such "tasteful" flicks as "Kingpen," "There's Something About Mary," and "Me, Myself and Irene").
This movie lacks the comedic genius of the the Farrelly brothers AND the comedy duo of Jim Carrey and Jeff Bridges, and it shows. The movie is slow and generally just not funny. Try watching just about anything else instead, and if you're looking for a great comedy, check out any of the above-mentioned movies, as they're ALL MUCH better than this one.

Generally worthless. A half-baked (if even that much) attempt at capitalizing on past successes, it doesn't even bring up a chuckle when they reference the original material. Read morePublished 8 months ago by J. Sierra
